A Recent Review of this tour

My family and I spent a wonderful day in Nara with Koji! He organized a tour through Nara's top World Heritage attractions where we saw (and touched!) many many deers. Koji told us about both ancient history of Nara and contemporary Japanese urban lifestyle. He was very kind to us and most of all to our children. A perfect guide for an unforgettable day!
